Griffins Progress Report: Berggren Shows He Has ‘D’ in His Game (+)



Jonatan Berggren, Red Wings

Jonatan Berggren netted his sixth goal in the past eight Grand Rapids Griffins games Saturday and yet his scoring play may not have been what the Detroit Red Wings management team liked about his game.

Berggren dove to knock the puck away from Manitoba Moose forward Patrick Ford who was about to fire the puck into an empty net in overtime. The Griffins ended up losing 4-3 in a shootout, but his effort was applauded on social media.

The Moose did end up winning the game, but it was a Berggren play that the Red Wings will remember when they need to call up a forward. The Red Wings know Berggren can create offense, but they want him to work on the details of his game. They want to see smart defensive play, more consistency in his overall game, and the elimination of ill-timed penalties.
